How to teach math to at-risk and underprepared students
Do you feel like you are failing your at-risk students - Even before the day begins?
Are you constantly frustrated that it seems like you are always working, but you have very little to show for all your efforts?
Are you worn out when you see low test scores or students that are not engaged?
Do you wish you could reach at-risk students, help under-prepared students get through the content, invest more time into your family, or even just to slow down and breathe?
You don’t have to keep teaching feeling constantly behind, overworked, and overwhelmed!
Why did I create this challenge?
For years I taught at-risk students. In fact, I was often the teacher with a roster full (100%) of at-risk students. I loved it. While it was often extremely challenging, the rewards are immense.
While I didn't do it perfectly. No one can. I did have a lot of success with challenging students. Those students that had learning difficulties, tough home lives, had switched schools too often, spoke another language, came to the United States after horrifying ordeals in their home countries or any combination of these challenges.
And while these situations are extremely difficult, there are strategies that will help keep kids motivated and engaged in your classroom. You will find that when we combine your strengths with the right strategies, your teaching will come alive and you will be more relaxed and more effective in your classroom.
If you’ve ever wished that you could figure out how to get your standards covered, reach you tough students and enjoy teaching again, the 10 Day Challenge is for you.
This course is not a one size fits all strategy. We have all sat through those PDs before and thought, "yea, come to my room..." This is a program where we will set up a system that fits your strengths and serves your students.
I am LOVING the challenge! I just listened to the video about "Why Won't They Try?" and I'm full of enthusiasm and excited to implement some new strategies. Thank you again for this wonderful course!
I would definitely recommend it. It’s a great reminder of some best practices that can get lost in the day to day grind in the classroom.
My students have been more engaged and I have been a better teacher.

Note: This is NOT a course about working harder!
Some of you may be wondering if this challenge is going to focus exclusively on working harder and more hours. Let's be clear: this course is not a call to work more or give up your life.
In fact, I emphasize the importance of actually working smarter, not harder, and include a project designed to streamline your classroom to get you home earlier.
No teacher should give up his or her family to be good at their job.
